FILM director James Lee explores the relationship between two estranged siblings in his latest horror film, Two Sisters, opening in cinemas on April 18.
He explains that Two Sisters is a psychological horror film that is plot- and character-driven.
“Sometimes you need a heavy marketing strategy just to remind the audience that a particular film exists in the cinema,” he says.
Made with budget of RM300,000, the film centres around Mei Yue (played by Lim Mei Fen) who spent some years in a psychiatric hospital, but was released into the care of her older sister Mei Xi (Emily Lim Pey Chi).
The two sisters decide to move back into their family house, which was abandoned years ago. When Mei Yue starts seeing unexplained eerie apparitions, she begins to question if she is losing her mind again. Or can it be that their family house is actually haunted?
Two Sisters is the first film to be released under the banner of Kuman Pictures, a film production house dedicated to low-budget thriller and horror projects, founded by filmmaker Amir Muhammad last year.
Interestingly, despite having yet to be released in cinemas, Two Sisters is already an award-winning movie. The film snagged the award for best musical score, written by Nick Davis, at the 30th Malaysian Film Festival Awards last Saturday.Read More
